Matt Harvey's notable highs and lows with the Mets

Matt Harvey's notable highs and lows with the Mets

Matt Harvey has been designated for assignment by the New York Mets, effectively ending what has been a turbulent and headline-grabbing time in the Big Apple.

The Mets are set to designate Harvey for assignment this weekend, a move that paves the way for NY to cut or trade the 29 year-old right hander. There will certainly be a suitor for Harvey somewhere, whether the Mets trade him or he's released by the team.

Matt Harvey, once regarded as a premier pitcher who could have joined Tom Seaver and Dwight Gooden among the Mets' greats, refused a minor league assignment and will be designated for assignment Saturday.

Mental makeup issues will dominate the Matt Harvey story, but poor health led him where he is today. "It's our job to help every player in here".

Harvey is 0-2 with a 7.00 ERA this year, leaving him with a 34-37 record and 3.66 ERA in five-plus major-league seasons. He made a relief appearance one night after the alleged trip to Los Angeles, allowing a home run to Padres outfielder Franchy Cordero in the Mets' 5-1 victory. Midway through the 2016 season he underwent surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome, which is often a death sentence for a pitcher's shoulder.

Veteran outfielder Jay Bruce, who has played with Harvey for parts of the past three seasons, said Harvey has earned the right to decline being sent to the minors.

He will be designated for assignment Saturday morning, taking him off the major league roster after a almost six seasons in a Mets uniform. I feel like he thinks he can have a chance somewhere else to kind of get a fresh start and a clean slate, and he's probably looking forward to that. Everything since then has been bad news for Harvey. This happens to a lot of people.

You could see this train wreck coming a mile away. He was suspended for three days without pay in May for skipping a game following a late night on the town.

"We feel Matt is a starter that needs to work on four pitches, " Boras said. Thoracic outlet syndrome is hard, as location of pitches and feel to pitch is the issue.
